Dear Editor:My name is Vincent Urzua and I am a Boy Scout at Troop 371. I am writing to you to share information about Boy Scouts. The Downey Patriot is a very interesting newspaper; we receive it at our house every week. I just want to give you an idea of a topic that I feel would be interesting for you to write about. A topic I think you should talk about a little more is Boy Scouts. It's a fun learning experience. It teaches you how to do a lot of things that you will need in life. The Boy Scouts also learn about survival skills when they go camping or if they're lost. It would be interesting to write about this because the Boy Scouts also help out the community. So people can see this and go, "Wow, that's cool!" Boy Scouts are also very cool and friendly. Then, after you talk about us, you can give information on how they can sign up to become one. It would be pretty awesome. Thank you very much for your time. Vincent Urzua Downey Editor's note: We think that is a wonderful idea, Vincent, and we thank you for sharing it. We encourage you and your friends to send us photos of all the cool things you do in the community, and we'll print them in the newspaper. Thank you, Vincent, for all your hard work and for helping make Downey a special place to live.
